    Riva Grate Cracked!!

    Guys just checked the skis before going out today, and on the wifes ski her grate had a crak in one of the long bars by the front bolt. everything else is good but a good crack in the long bar that runs front to reat onthe grate. I JB welded it like Kynsche would have done dan will sand it and put some Loctite putty around it also. Check the grates, has this happened to any one else. It is on a RXT.

    P.S.

    Off to buy another one.

    There was a post on Riva's site a month or two ago about grates failing. Riva's response was something to the effect that they had very few retuned due to cracks. You might want to contact them... Ron
